lol... that's funny. :ballchain:
just tell her it's the wrong switch. or just use it for something else. (i.e. throw some mood lights on the ceiling ;))
the switch would actually work fine it's made for automobile installation, i'm considering using it for the screen and the Cigarette Lighters instead though, i hate the fact that cigarette lights are a constant drain on power.
yes, if you power the hubs from the main relay, power to the hubs will be cut before the PC shuts down. the solution to this is to run a second relay for the hubs, with the OPUS +12V rail as the coil power. (see diagram below);
totally random question, is it possible to use a DC DC adapter on a laptop install? or is there another way you can think to power a usb hub w/o using an inverter?
how would i use the brick w/o an inverter, it comes out of the brick on the laptop end as DC, but has to go in as AC.
the power brick that comes with a laptop is an AC-DC power supply. you would need an inverter to use it.Quote:
